Haunting Goodbye

I know I have to

Don't want to leave

I know I need to

Don't want to move

--

My friends

My family

My love

My pride

Are all the things

I need to survive

--

I'm growing up

Leaving everything behind

I'm moving on

Tears slowly grace my face

--

My life

My soul

My beauty

My home

Never let go

Yet I must

--

All I know

Want to know

The word will haunt me

… Goodbye

--

To everything I hold dear

To everything I wonder

To everything I fear

To everything extraordinary

--

High school is no more

College is the new life

I don't want to leave

Let life freeze

And let me be

--

Don't say it

Say until next,

Time,

Life

Until…goodbye
